harmonize color picker

In the Sidebar -> property -> area there are different fill options
 - None
 - Color
 - Gradient
 - Bitmap
 - ...
In all Options you see in the color picker widget the color + color name like Light Gold 2, Dark Gold 2, ... this is very usefull cause you don't have to open the widget and see in the tooltip which color you use for an shape.

In all Options you see color + color name, only at Fill Style Color you can't see the label for an fast review on an shape color.

please use the widget from Fill: Gradient for Fill: Color so that it's easier to know the label (if there is no label the #4d4d4d number was shown, what is also fine)

Also in Sidebarline.ui file the Color item should use the Color + Label widget.

Line Sidebar

The idea is as everywhere (excl. Paragraph, Text and Table Panel) else to have left labels and right drop down widget with a preview.

In 6.4 we had already the LineStyle dropdown widget and also the Start and Endline Style dropdown widget. Would it be possible to use the 6.4 layout. Than we only have to update Line width and color widget.

I played around since weeks and nights but my skills aren't good enough and a bit frustrated.

All relevant changes were made by you, see https://opengrok.libreoffice.org/history/core/svx/uiconfig/ui/sidebarline.ui. Maybe this patch is what you want to reconsider https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/c/core/+/90460

Who needs quick access to cap style, corner style, and transparency?

No the .ui change was only an rearrangement of the widgets. 

# eae55d73 or # af71531e or maybe # 4f6d95ea are the patches where the change was done.

However the problem is that no only change in the .ui file is needed also in the .cpp files.

As corner style and cap style were handled different in LibO and MSO or at least the import is not 100% correct from MSO files, you need them. Transparency is there for consistancy I think. 

However please start a new bug report about remove specific content from a sidebar panel.
